'" Young Man, the Farm Needs Youl
: Many thousands of .young men who. will not
be called upon for duty in the army are anxious
to help wherever thevcan bt of most service in
the present crisis. To these the farms of Amer
ica offer opportunity of rare importance.
Never in all our history ha auch a call been
made to the farmers of America as now. On them
depends the future. Many .months ago a great
statesman said the decisive battle of the present
war would be fought in the wheat fields. And on
the wheat fields of America falls' the' greatest of
responsibility. ; ' ".'" '
If our farms are to yield as is expected of them
men must be had to do the needed work. The
government is busy just now gathering data pre
liminary to a general survey of the country to de
termine the number of men available for farm
work, particularly for the harvest time, which will
commence about the 1st of June and continue
throught until late in the fall. " '
Young men in schools, clerks in city offices
who are planning for summer vacations and others
who are eager to serve are available for this work.
It is service as essential and as worthy as any in
warfare. The call from the farms is as clear as
the call from the camps. ' Will the young' men
. Question of Morale Important.
Whether reports- coming out of Germany at
present may be depended on as a basis for opin
ion is of exceeding importance at this juncture.
It is reasonably certain that some foundation, ex
ists for the talcs of popular demonstrations ot
revolt against the military rule of the empire.
This feeling is. indicative of the end, if of any-,
thing, of the great war., Discontent among the
workers at fioms, on whose activity so much de
pends for the success of the armies in the field,
ip a sign of. disintegration that portends the ulti
mate dissolution of the whole campaign. On. the
morale of the nation, as much as of the army it
self, hangs the fate of the country," .
At the outset the German nation was uni:
fied for the struggle as no nation ever was be
fore Years of training and preparation,' of con
stant victory in wars and unprecedented progress
in arts and industry had cemented the people sol
idly together and the first magnificent sweep of the
gray-green wave across- Belgium and Flanders
and France was the irresistible movement of the
conquering German spirit. When this drive had
spent Its force and was turned back on itself at
the battle of Marne the end was made clear, al
though its time could not be prophesied with ac
curacy. Still the mastery remained with the, Ger
mans and for many 'months they held the moral
advantage against the Allies; who made desper
ate resistance... This condition has .changed1 and
the prestige ot attack has passed' over to the
Germany is now fighting a defensive war.
Whatever notion of conquest may have animated
the leaders at the outset has given way to plans
for holding out until the German empire may be
made secure. With this turn in the fortunes of bat
tle comes the more serious effect of weakened
morale. Even,': tha slightest of foundation, for
fumor's now heard of the unrest in the empire is
proof of the crumbling of the unity that made
Germany so formidable at the outset. .

The Commercial dub's committee returns dis-
satiified from .Chicago, whither- it went on a
quest to secure front the railroads something f
relief from discrimination now practiced in favor
of Kansas City. It didn't get even half a loaf.
One lltttle meaningless concession was ; granted,
in lien of the generous and fair treatment ex
pected. No good reason ever has been advanced
why the discriminatory rate ever was established, :
but why It should be persisted in after it has been
pointed out, as it has been, is beyond comprehen
sion. Omaha has protested and appealed in vamj
the magnates" apparently' feel we are-where we
must put up with whatever they give us. NO other
interpretation can be put on the action. Perhaps
a Wy may be found by which the tate-fixlng as
sociations may be brought to realize that Omaha
will not rest until1 given treatment similar to that
accorded its great neighbor down the river. A
differential of $2.05 on the regular rate and $5.10
on the tourist rate is too much of favor to Kan
sas City to be patiently borne here. Another
trip to Chicago is due. '
"Conscripting". Money for MlTr.
Senators are coupling with their promises, to
vote for the president's army bill, pledges to
tote also for ;the' conscripting of money where
with to defray the expenses of the war. ' This
plan was suggested by the president and his
counsellors before the present session of congress
opened. It was frankly proposed that as much as
possible of the immense sums needed for tarrying
on our warlike operations should he raised by tax
ation.-. Mr, McAdoo outlined such a plan in the
budget he prepared for presentation to congress
and it will surely bt brought forward when the
revenue bill is framed. Wealth has eett drafted
for war uses in other lands with freedom equal to
that by which men have been taken. It 1s a mat
ter of courae and permits no argument." The

erty over life; under its laws both are sacred and
both are pledged' continually to the use of the

votes for universal man-service and does not vote

An appeal from the sentence of universal exe
cration on the late General von Visaing, governor
of Belgium, is entered by the Berlin Taieblatt.
According to this authority, Von Bissing was hot

measures, says the Tagcblatt, were ordered "from

The Department oj Agriculture t
War Bread and Dyes
By Frederic J. Haskin
Washineton. D. C Aoril 25. In the develop
ment of substitutes for use in place of wheat the
United States is ahead of Germany.- We have
just aa high a grade of chemical skill and train
ing among our experts and we have a great many
more raw materials to draw on for wheat substi
tutes. Experts of the bureau of- chemistry in the
Department of Agriculture have baked no less
than forty different kinds of bread, using as many
substitutes tor a per cent ot tne wneat nour
needed. All of these breads are entirely nour
ishing and palatable and some are considered by
those who have tasted them to be superior to
ordinary bread. The wheat substitutes, . besides
such ordinary onea as buckwheat and. oats ana
rye, include the more unexpected names of ba
nanas and chestnuts and rice and kafir corn and
cottonseed meal and peanuts. 'The peanut in par
ticular furnishes a fine tasty bread, rich and nour
ishing, and of a beautitul light texture; Hut all
these substitute breads are tasty, nourishing and
adequate for food. y
Now there is no danger that the United states
is aamd to be badlv omened for .lack of bread.
There are no grounds whatever for panic. But
there is every ground for economy, for the use
of substitutes and for the taking of all practicable
measures to conserve the wheat supply. . Master
i. i. - r ... r i t : t .
oaxera aircaay spcax oi me neccnuy lor mgncr
prices. The bread situation can be clearly summed
uo in a few figures and since they touch every
American's three meals a day these figures may
not seem dry.
First it should be noted that the bread situa
tion includes both, a necessity and an obligation.
There is the domestic need, amounting to 550,
000,000 bushels t year, from which about 110,000,
000 barrels of flour are milled. Our consumption
of flour is a little over barrel t year per person.
Then there is the .element ot toreign demand.
The United States ia a wheat-exporting nation
and our European allies are looking to . us Tor
food. It is a national obligation to export as
much wheat as possible and here, is where the
shortage pinches, the crop prospects show that
the winter wheat harvest Is going to fall below
even last year's short crop. The spring wheat
crop in the United States is normally only . one-
third of the total. ' fcven -though acreage is
greatly increased, the deficit can hardly be bal
anced with spring wheat. In order to do our
share in -the war we must keep odr food exports
up and in order to keep- them Hip we must piece
out our wheat supply. . ,. , ... , .-, ;
The men in the bureau' of elieinistrv who'have
Worked out the new breads are7 confident it can
be done. In their list of wheat substitutes they
shpw where the nation can draw 'on enough raw
materials to substitute for" a quarter of the en
tire wheat consumption The list includes raw
materials to be found in every section corn, pota
toes, rice, peanuts, oats, peas and beans, bran, cot
tonseed meal and dozens of others. And It should
be remembered that the breads baked from flour
that is three-fourths wheat flour and one-fourth
substitute are no unpalatable makeshifts. They
are all breads whose excellence is vouched for
by the palate and whose nourishing qualities are
proven by chemical analysis. ,
- In order to increase the available .wheat sup
ply by 125,000,000 bushels it is only necessary
'or an emerffenev measure to nrovide that some
substitutes for wheat flour shall be used by bak
ers in the proportion of one part to three parts
of wheat flour. Such an emergency measure may
never be needed, but the work in developing the
new kinds of bread, which has covered about
four yeara of research, has already been done.
Such a measure would be a war measure, but it
would inflict no hardship on anybody.
.Another way to increase the wheat supply,
according to the bureau, would be to increase
the amount of flour obtained from a bushel ' of
wheat, in the milling process. The present proc
ess makes seventy-two pounds of flour from 100
pounds of wheat. It ia possible, say the experts,
to make ninety pounds of flour from 100 pounds
of wheat without in any way injuring the value
of the flour as a food material. This means that
there would be less bran made and more flour.
It -means' a saving of 18 per cent '. This saving
on the 550,000,000 bushels of. our domestic con
sumption would amount to about 100,000,000 bush
els. Thus by the use of substitutes and by a mill
ing process that uses more-of. the wheat we can
increase our available wheat supply by 225,000.-
000 bushels. This would be enough to take care
of the ahortage and our bread would be as tasty
and nourishing as ever. In order to bring about
the 90 per cent flour production it would only be
necessary to pass an emergency requiring all
millers to grind their wheat accordingly. -
Dr. Le Clerc. who is in charge of the bread
Investigationa for the bureau, has in his office
a little hand mill that cost $5. The other day
be looked into the local Dour situation. He found
that flour was selling at $1250 a barrel and whole
wheat flour at S16 a barrel. On his little mill he
xan grind a barret of flour from three bushels
and Sixteen pounds ot wheat. . At the current
high prices this wheat would cost about $8. - Thus,
by hand grinding, you can produce just as .good a
a f i ., t o ' , r t-
nour a( a saving 01 irom 3 10 90 a oarrci. ux.
Le Clerc estimates that the ordinary family of
five could save about $35 a year this way, Alt
the flour necessary for the home baking' could
be ground on the home mill by the man ot the
house if he were willing, to turn the handle for
ten minutes of an evening once or twice a week.
1 Another important line of work in the bureau
of chemistry is the progress,, made in dyestuff
manufacture. The denendence of this country- on
-Germany for dyes three years ago and the high
prices and the dye famine caused by: the stop-
fage of supplies ar.e already matters of history,
t is less known, however, that this. Condition is
rapidly becoming a thing of the past .Processes
for aye manufacture are Deing worked out in this
country; the prices of dyes are steadily going
down Just now they are stilt so high that any
man who can make a dye can make a profit But
even after the war we are going to hold some of
this business. The work along this- line ia still
young and the experts are reluctant to prophesy,
but they go so far as to say that Germany has
lost some of its American dye market forever.
We can make the same dyes here and make them
cheaper. We are even exporting some of them.
A dyestuff factory is now being built by the bu
reau at-Arlington, Vs., where further problems
win be -worked out on a factory scale. A year
or two more may see American dye manufactur
ers competing in foreigivnarkets. for the busi
ness of the world. -

Fortunately for his happiness, rep
